The Star Lake Women’s Institute year has been a busy one – working to raise money and working with the hall board to get the work done in our hall. A big thank you to all the volunteers who have come out to work on our hall. We have had a number of talented craftpersons in our area. Our pancake breakfasts have been well attended and we thank everyone who came and enjoyed them. Our cook is very talented in making good pancakes and his smiles are always there to greet us.

The Friday night Coffee House has been a great success and well attended. Again I would like to comment on all the musical talent in the area. If you have musical talent please come and enjoy a night at the Coffee House.

The Halloween party for the children in October and the Christmas party in December were put on by the hall board and we would like to thank all the people who volunteered their help. Santa was a very big hit with the children and adults. Suzi Reid and Tom Krauseneck decorated the hall and everyone enjoyed it. Many talented people in the North Thompson district, displaying their crafts and baking, attended the Craft Fair. Sometimes we don’t realize what we have in our own community with the talent and friendship, and how people band together when they are needed.

If any of the ladies in the community would like to hear a speaker that we could bring in, contact us and we will try and make it happen. Also if there is a workshop that we could hold, you only have to contact us and we will help you bring them in.

We are into a new year and we wish everyone the best in the coming year.

Contact number: 250-587-6442. We meet the second Thursday of the month at the Blackpool Hall at 1 p.m. Anyone wishing to attend one of our meetings is invited to come.
